Mail Art in Paris

 I did 2 cards early this morning, and two cards in the early afternoon.  For the first series, I used a show card from the Korean artist who had a exhibit that opening this week.
 I torn the show card in half to get two standard postcard sized bases. Someone had left an old (1990) art auction catalog in the atelier. I used that to find art work to use on top of the show card. I added the small labels and my date stamp.
 This second series uses show cards by another Korean artist, who has an exhibit at a Gallery in Village St.Paul. Again, I used a painting from the auction catalog, tearing it in half and using each half on a separate show card.
I'm quite pleased with the results.
